Because the same coastline would have both peninsula names.

You got it right. And I agree, if we leave the proposal at this, that meana
a lot of tags.

So first, we can ignore the big peninsulas like Europe. I only used that
for the example.

Second, for big peninsulas we can use only one unifying tag like
peninsula:1:wikidata=Q12837 <http://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q12837> and
forget about names. Names can be added in Wikidata.
